Don't forget the ring pliers!!!!

I tried to force that locking strip in with the marlin spike. My thumbs went numb for several weeks. After an hour I had 6" of locking strip installed. I trimmed off the excess and went home.

The pliers open up the gasket and it slides right in, sort of. It still takes some work. It took about an hour to finish the rest of the port.
